MObil Durch Europa
Start date: Jan 1, 2015, End date: Dec 31, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

1. Project’s background: Our primary interest in working with young people is to improve their international competences and to enrich them through transnational professional qualification measures. In the framework of the European Year of Volunteering, we would like to give a young person the opportunity to reinforce her/his competences and qualifications during a period of 12 months. According to her/his needs, (s)he can grow through various projects we are running within our organisation and learn, step by step, how to self-enable her-/himself. Our organisation, the St. Johannis GmbH, is looking forward to having in 2015 various groups of young people coming from international partners, mainly from Sweden. This will allow the volunteer to learn, reinforce and broaden various competences. We attach a particular importance to her/his individual development that the tutor, who will be the volunteer’s direct contact for the entire duration of the project, will monitor with great sensitiveness and follow up on regularly. The ‘European Idea’ as well as ‘Working abroad in Europe’ are always integral parts of our work. The project aims at fostering the mobility of young people in Europe. Since 2009, we have been involved in various projects together with our partner organisation IDEUM from Arvidsjaur/Sweden, which allows us to guarantee a good and smooth cooperation. 2.
